Question description

You are a judge who believes that individuals should be allowed to choose when to die.

You personally had to watch both your parents die long and agonizing deaths because your state does not have a right-to-die statute. Before you is a doctor who is being prosecuted for giving a lethal dose of morphine to a patient dying of terminal cancer. The family of the patient did not want the prosecution, the majority of the public is not in favor of the prosecution, but the prosecutor believes that if there is a law in place, it should be enforced. The doctor has opted for a bench trial.

Write a 2-3 page, APA style paper addressing where you examine your options and defend your position. Please include 2-3 references. Only one reference may be from an internet source (not Wikipedia) the other references must be located in the University Online Library. Only the body of the paper will count toward the page requirement. Include a title sheet.
